QDS offers the highest level of sales and distribution services for independent publishers looking to reach their core consumers. Its origins are deeply rooted in the strength of “special sales” accounts. The QDS sales organization is designed to reach specialty accounts, as well as service traditional booksellers, wholesalers, and on-line retailers. Regional managers based in strategic geographical regions are responsible for cross-channel selling, and are supplemented by a dedicated telephone sales team organized by category. We treat every title individually, identifying the right customers, in the right channels, to reach the core enthusiast consumer.

Why QDS? Every publisher’s books are sold by an experienced and dedicated sales team that services major accounts such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Books-A-Million and independent bookstores. Equally significant are the specialty accounts that are growing in importance, and in sales. In some cases, a book’s dominant channel could be hardware stores; in others, it could be a gift store, gourmet shop, museum, or even a car dealership. We cover them all. As a QDS client, you will be brought into a collaborative environment where the collective goal is to build a sales plan for your publishing program that will result in the best return on our mutual investment.
